Re: rust-oleum topside paint enamel

There are other marine paints that are more traditional on the topside like
- Interlux Perfection
- Alexseal
- Awlgrip
- others ....

These paints have a loyal following. But when it came time to paint my hard dinghy 4 years ago I decided to try Rust-Oleum Topside White marine paint. I was impressed! It flowed out well, is very hard, and is durable. Flow out was very important to me, since I am not a pro, I'm a roll and tip guy.

I was so impressed that I used it, in Navy Blue, to paint the Boot and Cove stripes on my boat 2 yrs ago at haul out. I continue to be impressed and happy with this paint. I'm more than a little surprised by the quality and characteristics.

Re: rust-oleum topside paint enamel

I agree with post #2. I was very impressed with the paint product although no knowledge of the bottom paint or spar varnish. I never even knew they had bottom paint.

I used inside to paint bulkheads. Very hard and lasting, roll and tip, flows and levels very well.
I have had second hand opinion that for the topsides it is a good paint but gloss retention is not that great. I can't comment on gloss retention since it was applied on wood and in the cabin.

So I take it that it works fine on the boot stripe, even though it says 'not below the water line', right?

This is the application I have in mind right now, I have to repaint my boot strip at each haul out. II have just used black paint so far, also Rustoleum but not 'marine'. Would be nice if it would hold up a bit longer.

Yes I've been happy so far. I assume it means that it cant be below the waterline 100% of the time. My bootstripe is above the waterline at rest. Of course it gets splashed underway, and is submerged when heeled.

I painted the boot stripe ~2 years ago. The boat is in the water year round and sailed frequently. No problems yet. No lifting, no flaking. I prepped with a light sanding using a scotch brite and wipe down with acetone. rolled on with a foam roller.

Mine is pretty much AT the waterline but it seems worth a try. Thanks for the tip, I will use a foam roller (or brush) for application.

I ordered a quart of black on Amazon.

Re: rust-oleum topside paint enamel

I used Rustoleum white enamel for the box-seat on our skiff. Has been holding up well for the past three years.

Re: rust-oleum topside paint enamel

I had good results with the topsides but the varnish did not hold up well.
